Any suggestions?

Now found that it is a Peppered Moth...or rather will be next year!

Oh---while I was "researching" you got it!

I was just going to post my findings:
So cool!
I googled "British caterpillar looks like green stick" and it looks like a peppered moth caterpillar (?).
I've never heard of such a thing---does that sound familiar?

This Cornwall blog even posted a photo of one on October 4 (2013)
